    Best Tips to Prepare for JEE Mains

    September 09, 2019

    The Joint Entrance Examination is one of the most participated examination for school students to enter a good engineering college in India. It is a three section Maths and Science based examination which is almost entirely focused on MCQ type questions. Students prepare their entire high-school life just to be able to clear this exam as it opens doors to various top-level engineering colleges such as IIT, NIIT, SBSSTC, and more. This also prepares them for a life of hard work, dedication and meaning. While coaching is one thing widely recommended for the exam, the only ones who clear it are those who also put in their own efforts into preparation and go the extra mile with it. If you are looking for tips that will help you do so for JEE Mains 2020, the tips given below should be helpful for you.


    Focus on Maths

    While the examination has three sections, maths is objectively the foundation of all of Class 11 and 12 science. All the questions that you will be attempting will be entirely numerical based. Therefore, without a strong foundation in Mathematics, you will be unable to think fast and clear the exam in the given time. Therefore, you should devote an extra hour to mathematics every day.


    Follow a Timetable

    Following a study time table is what will really help you in getting a good rank in the JEE Mains. The best way is to start with the subject you don’t like very much. Once you have finished it, you will feel much lighter and happier. Then you may take a short break and move on to the next subject. Also, this exam is JEE Mains, and hence it is expected of you to devote at least 2 hours a day to each subject. This is for your self-study after school and coaching. It may sound hard, but will get you to results you desire.


    Keep Solving Mock Tests

    While many students are able to solve the “JEE level” questions in classrooms, they fail to do so in examination halls. A big reason is that they are not yet familiar with the examination environment. This can be overcome by giving constant mock tests from time to time – which will enable you to become used to giving JEE- type examinations.


    Follow the above, and it is guaranteed that you will get a great score in JEE Mains 2020.
